We must learn to tailor our concepts to fit reality, instead of trying to stuff reality into our concepts.Victor Daniels
I beseech you, in the bowels of Christ, think it possible you may be mistaken.Oliver Cromwell
There is many a good man to be found under a shabby hat.Chinese Proverb
Misogynist A man who hates women as much as women hate one another.H.L. Mencken
The price of seeing is silence.Marge Piercy, Circles in the Water Intruding
Imagination has brought mankind through the dark ages to its present state of civilization. Imagination led Columbus to discover America. Imagination led Franklin to discover electricity. Imagination has given us the steam engine, the telephone, the talking-machine, and the automobile, for these things had to be dreamed of before they became realities. So I believe that dreams--daydreams, you know, with your eyes wide open and your brain machinery whizzing--are likely to lead to the betterment of the world. The imaginative child will become the imaginative man or woman most apt to invent, and therefore to foster, civilization.L. Frank Baum

I have never seen a more lucid, better balanced, mad mind than mine.
